Ensure that file extensions are showing

NOTE: If Config file does NOT show the .config extension, you will either need to ensure that the extensions are showing, OR when renaming the file to decrypt, it will need to be named web as adding the .config will not allow the decryption to work. 

*Config must be decrypted on the machine that it was encrypted on or it will fail!* 

1.    Go to the installation folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\MarineCFO\Vessel365"  

2.    Make a copy of Vessel365.Client.UI.exe.config to desktop (just for backup)  

3.    Rename Vessel365.Client.UI.exe.config to Web.Config  

4.    Open COMMAND PROMPT as Administrator

                > From the CMD window enter & run the following:

                             CD C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319

                > Upon success, run the following:

                            aspnet_regiis.exe -pdf "appSettings" "C:\Program Files (x86)\MarineCFO\Vessel 365"

                > Upon success, run the following:

                            aspnet_regiis.exe -pdf "connectionStrings" "C:\Program Files (x86)\MarineCFO\Vessel 365"

5.    Rename Web.Config back to Vessel365.Client.UI.exe.config  

If you open Vessel365.Client.UI.exe.config it should now be decrypted.
